    An InfoPass appointment may be a good way to force an answer. You might also go to the office of a local Representative from your district and ask for assistance.

    Then, when you figure out what is actually going on, speak with an attorney - you may have some serious difficulties depending on where this case stands now, impacting your ability to reenter if you leave.
